Bruce McClure of EarthSky, says “Watch for the biggest full moon of the year to shine all night long as it beams in the east after sunset April 7, climbs highest up for the night around midnight, and sets in the west around sunrise April 8.”
The full moon occurs precisely at 10:35 p.m. EDT on April 7.
Of the three supermoons this year, April’s is closest to Earth and will appear bigger. April’s supermoon is the second of three to take place in a row, following March’s Super Worm Moon and preceding May’s Super Flower Moon.
The Pink Supermoon will rise at:
Eastport, Maine - 6:37 p.m. Jacksonville, Florida - 6:25 p.m. Tuscaloosa, Alabama - 5:48 p.m. Bismark, North Dakota - 8 p.m. Salt Lake City, Utah - 7:45 p.m.
